simple flatbed trailer

Looking for a simple starter flatbed trailer for my 13' raft. Not a lot of luck on craigslist so was looking for some suggestions.

Harbor Freight? I've got their 8' trailer modified for 3 dirt bikes and storage. I run it up and down the highway at 85 and it's a champ.

have u pulled the trigger yet? get the heavy duty 1720 lb capacity trailer. on sale for 350$. if u have a store by u get/print a 20 percent off coupon to get a REALLY good deal. this trailer has bigger tires and wheels. buy a couple of spares too while ur there. or better yet if u have easy access to the store buy trailer and or each spare in separate trips with a coupon and save even more money. stainless steel bolt some 2x4 wood into the stake pockets and bolt some 4x4 to the 2x4 horizontally. paint or coat a thick sheet of cdx and secure that to ur 4x4. adding some fancy tie down points would make things more convenient and upgrading the suspension would probably enable it to hold even more weight, although it might be a wash because u may then have to upgrade the wheels and axle. iguess if u could get a good deal on the upgrade parts...
